I think this is high.Since no maker was listed. But thereare palces where a good Americam made Mc Cellan can be obtained for under $700. Here is the add from 1 of the saddle makers on the internet. Price includes:
1859 McClellan Saddle, black or brown leather parts. Ready to ride with coat straps, girth, covered stirrups, stirrup straps and fenders. Blanket, saddle bags, and breast harness are extra. Made on quarter horse bars to fit today's horses in either 11, 11 1/2, or 12 inch seat. Special order (larger or smaller) trees available.
If anyone needs the website let me know.
